Child-Centered Homeschooling
We created a memory box as a group project this year.  Each child decorated their own box to store their memories and favorite things for the current year.  What a great keep sake!  I can just imagine 5, 10, even 20 years from now the kids looking back on these memories.  I think at the end of the year, I am going to take the box and store it away.  We might repeat this every year until graduation or she tells me that she's no longer interested.

When she graduates high school or college, I'll have each box nicely wrapped for her.  At least those are my plans.  Another option is to hold on to the boxes until her own children are the same age as she was when she created each box.  That way, she and her kid(s) can do a now and then comparison. 

If anyone else had done this kind of thing (or is planning to), I would love to hear your ideas!
